- 6 DIY Gifts for Bridesmaids this Wedding Season
From bachelorette parties to bridal showers, your bridesmaids have been there for you since day one. As your special day draws nearer, don’t forget to thank the women who have been your source of strength and support through it all. These six DIY gifts for bridesmaids will have your I Do Crew feeling the love long after the wedding is over.
Your bridesmaid’s feet may be a little sore after dancing the night away at your wedding reception. Treat your favorite ladies to a mini spa day with a pedicure in a jar. Simply fill a mason jar with pedicure essentials, like nail clippers or nail polish, and decorate with your wedding colors. You can even gift this to your girls before the wedding to spend a day pampering yourselves as a group.
For an adorable gift that your bridesmaids will use again and again, consider gifting a personalized tote bag. All you’ll need to create this versatile bag is some acrylic paint or fabric markers and a plain tote bag. This tutorial will show you how to make a sweet doily canvas bag, but you can decorate it however you want. Let your creative juices flow to create a one-of-a-kind tote bag for your bridesmaids.
If you’d prefer gifting a smaller bag that’s equally as handy, try this tutorial for a striped canvas makeup bag. This craft is super simple and makes for the perfect DIY gift for bridesmaids. This bag is versatile and small enough that it can be used to store just about anything. It makes the perfect travel bag for makeup, can serve as a pencil pouch, or can even be popped into a purse for extra organization.
This craft is low in effort but high in class. With just a gold Sharpie or paint marker you can take a ceramic mug from plain to precious. Try out your penmanship skills with a cursive monogram or choose a pretty pattern to decorate the mug. Fill the mug with small trinkets or candy for a sweet treat that your bridesmaids will love.
These vintage teacup candles are the perfect gift for bridesmaids who love the look of mugs and teacups, but don’t necessarily have a taste for coffee or tea. Many thrift stores have a large array of vintage teacups, making this a simple and cheap way to thank your bridesmaids for being a part of your special day.
